The Marina is a key asset of our Bentwater community. With 400 boat slips on 8 docks, it's been argued that Bentwater on Lake Granbury owns the largest private marina in Texas!
400 of the properties in Bentwater have licensed exclusive rights to the use of a boat slip at the marina, per Section 3.10 of our covenants, and the slip assignments are managed by the Property Owners' Association under the guidance of the Marina Committee.
Bentwater’s rolling hills offer beautiful views of Lake Granbury, the famous Brazos River Valley, Downtown Granbury and Comanche Peak. The name Brazos River, originally named by the Spanish: Rio de los Brazos de Dios, translates to “The River of the Arms of God’.
Prior to development, Bentwater was a large working ranch bordered by the Brazos river, with native prairie hay meadows, large ponds, groves of old Live Oak and Elm, and native Texas Wildflowers.
Tract sizes run from 1 acre to 10, and we strive to maintain an open country view while conserving native habitat for waterfowl and striped bass in the ponds as well as the occasional deer, fox, coyote, armadillo, tortoise and beaver that share their habitat with us.
Bentwater has joined in the international effort of conserving milkweed and native wildflowers for the support of the Monarch Butterfly migration. We do this by encouraging mowing practices which support our wildflower populations reseeding and by encouraging the planting of nectar sources in home landscaping.
The Bentwater storage lot, with access off of Wills Way Drive, is a amenity typically not offered by most communities. The lot is fenced and locked with keypad access provided to those renting the lot.
Timed lights are installed for those who need to access the lot after dark.
Spaces in the lot are leased for the remainder of the calendar year based on availability.
The cost to rent a space for 2018 is:
18' Space: $75 / year
25' Space: $95 / year
28' Space: $100 / year
34' Space: $115 / year
